5 things you need to know about dating a journalist
Your date will be up on all the local news and current affairs. Successful reporters (like the one you’re dating) are ambitious and aren’t afraid to take risks. Related to #6, your date might even make the first move. Reporters make great dates to parties and family events, as they’re great at asking questions and engaging others in conversation. Your date will always have interesting stories to tell.
Your date will remember your birthday, the way you like your coffee, and that promise you made her last week.
I’m slightly ashamed to say that the following post is not my own. Visions of Clark Kent taking off the glasses and ripping off his clothes to reveal a perfectly toned body in blue spandex coming to save you run through your head.

Reporters are passionate communicators, excited to share stories with a wider audience.
If you like smart guys/girls, a reporter will keep you on your toes.
